6:37am
accent? >> yes. it is a translation of the kind of thing. by the way, can i pause here and say sports minister? really? there's a sport minister over there? we don't have that and we have every kind of administrative position possible. >> i wish we did. i would vote for a sports minister. there's a lot of things going on that are out of control. >> would it be somebody that oversaw everything? they would be above the commissioner of baseball? >> yes. my father is available right now.

6:39am
because you know, you can get arrested for wearing, you know, gay pride button because you know, the children. >> stephanie: because something blah blah blah, the children. we'll see how this plays out, right? i think some human rights organizations have written to john kerry to say you know, are gay people going to be protected basically? >> right. there has already been members of congress that have said -- this is ridiculous. we need a guarantee here. and you know, i think the figure skaters in particular need a guarantee. >> stephanie: what are you referring? >> i don't know. i don't think i'm inferring anything he's not stated clearly. >> stephanie: a good piece about the relative douche nozzlery of ted cruz. i had not heard this anecdote. he went on a bonding experience with fellow princeton students.
6:40am
someone said cruz was such an unrepentant [ bleep ] head that several people discussed ditching him in the woods. >> yeah. this was actually told to me. this is not nothing -- this was told to me by a princeton student who was there at the time. and you know, it is anen he can dote. can be hypocritical but it sure makes sense that you would go on a trip with ted cruz and he would try to convince you to do all kinds of stupid things and you know, like hey, let's just -- let's just row this boat over the waterfall because you know, down below, there's -- i don't know, there's money. >> stephanie: well, as you were saying, there are several members of the senate as he calls it, surrender caucus that would like to ditch him in the woods currently, right? >> right, right. >> he's just making all kinds of trouble for them. it is him and rand paul calling out, calling the traditional republicans wimps and you know,
6:41am
this is their frankenstein monster though. they're the ones that went over to the tea party fire, just started fanning those flames and then all have a sudden, they created these candidates that got elected and sorry, you know, maybe we need -- if you guys want to turn into the villagers now, fine. set them on fire. man, i went far with that metaphor, didn't i? >> stephanie: you really did. i don't know where you were going. >> i was going to tell the whole story of the frankenstein movie right there. we were going to the castle. >> stephanie: i was in the backseat, all right, is that where we're going? here's the thing. i suppose on our side, we should be cheering for this because you know, obviously shutting down the government a, would not stop obamacare and b, it would be a p.r. disaster for the republican party. i guess we should hope they follow ted cruz on this. >> sure. you know, even it's dividing republicans, too, which is more
6:42am
fun to watch. even scott friggin' walker came out and said no, don't shut down the government. you know. i think somebody said how much blood is going to be spilled just to try to get rid of obamacare. yeah, there's -- this is the step too far. and but you know, now i love it. i actually said something kind of nice -- not nice but said that newt gingrich was at least honorable in his intentions. but now -- >> stephanie: not toward any of his wives. >> right. but about shutting down the government. he was like screw you guys, i'm shutting down the government. ted cruz was being weaselly about it saying if the government shuts down, it is obama's fault because he won't sign on to defunding his signature initiative. >> stephanie: why are you hitting yourself, obama. why are you hitting yourself? >> now, gingrich said no, no, i
6:43am
support cruz. i support rand paul. it is good to know that at the end of the day, you know, newt gingrich is still just a -- wow, i can't think of a word that doesn't involve something i can't say. >> stephanie: exactly. somehow the fcc breaks one on there. we appreciate. so rand paul, his fellow tea party douche nozzle, i just -- one of my favorite sentences and i'll have to bleat my bleep -- rand paul looks like he's had enough weed at the frat house to agree to [ bleep ] the goat's mascot for $do. has continued to war with the establishment in this party. this is one of the best man fights ever between him and chris christie, right? >> it is. i love that -- what was it? paul said let's sit down for a beer and christie said go f yourself. i'm not sitting down with a beer with you, weirdo from the south. you know, i totally smoke a bowl
6:44am
with him. i think the stuff that he would come up with while you were smoking with him, he would be off on all kinds of carlos things. >> stephanie: just aqua buddha alone. >> every cell in your fingernail is like one tiny little universe. wow. blew my mind, man. >> he came to my show in lexington. he came to the meet and greet afterwards. >> stephanie: no way. really? >> yeah. i did all of the jokes about his father right in front of him. i don't know if he laughed but his party of people laughed. then i couldn't believe how tiny he is. he would walk away, the artist formerly known as rand paul. he is really tiny. i would say maybe as short as me in heels so 5'1". >> stephanie: really? because his dad looked like a tiny little floating head in a giant suit during the republican -- >> all mini.
6:45am
he doesn't have the giant head. >> why was rand paul wearing heels? i don't understand. >> we were both wearing heels. that's what was odd. >> i had the heels on. i think he had maybe the prince boots on. he had boots on because i remember the cowboy boots. >> stephanie: what were some of your jokes about rand paul? >> from the last election, there's a lot of people that, half of the time your father speaks. we all go well, he's right. and then the other half of the time your father speaks, he sounds like your crazy grandpa at thanksgiving where you go you can't do that or to make social security solvent if we killed every single person under the age of 33, we would be even. you're right but we can't do that you crazy person. they will run away. they're faster than us. we'll have to capture them and put them in catches. they can text one another. he can't catch the young people. >> stephanie: good thought, grandpa. >> it's true but it's not
6:46am
plausible. >> the people in rand paul's party must have been cracking up thinking that's exactly what we say every day. >> they're very southern, real very, very southern and they were all very, very nice. he doesn't -- he doesn't really laugh a lot. rand. he's not a loosey-goosey ted kennedy type. let's put it that way. he's quite serious. >> stephanie: you did point out also he's from the giant -- >> wheel of right wing hypocrites. >> stephanie: look what you found, rude. a march '05 letter cosigned by paul begging for federal aid for tornado-plagued kentucky. >> that's right. who would have thought that when a disaster strikes your state, you would beg for money but when a disaster strikes other dave states, you would say it is gimme, gimme, gimme.
6:47am
>> stephanie: a bacon king like chris christie, i guess. >> he signed it. mcconnell signed it and now he's slamming people who want sandy aid to rebuild. just beautiful. >> stephanie: yeah. gorgeous. rudeness, great stuff as always. talk to you next week. >> all right, bye. >> stephanie: see him next week. i cannot get the notion of the teeny tiny rand paul out of my head. >> he's tiny. >> if you bought him for your dashboard, he's the same size. >> maybe if he wore a purple beret. >> stephanie: or raspberry beret. 47 minutes after the hour. we continue with kathleen madigan. call the political party line now. 1-800-steph-12.

6:53am
just background noise of nothing. nothing. >> stephanie: senator saxby chambliss yesterday. >> an awful lot of chatter out there. chatter means conversation among terrorists about the planning that's going on. very reminiscent of what we saw pre9-11. >> stephanie: that's what the bush administration did dplij. it makes you all skeptical of whether they're trying to scare us or whether it is real. >> and it makes us forget about the fact that they're not doing their real jobs. >> stephanie: right, there's that. >> not really doing their legal jobs. >> i just looked at the embassy. i don't think there are any comedy clubs. i read the whole list. madagascar, no. rwanda, not doing it. >> you have a good sense of human -- they don't have a good sense of humaner there. >> especially for $500 for air flat. >> stephanie: to say i killed in rwanda would not be good.
6:54am
>> saudi arabia, not going there. especially the female comic. i don't think they're big on lady's night. although i have thought about the fact if i had to do tv over there, i would probably have to wear a burka and i would be happy. i didn't have -- i wouldn't have to do hair and makeup. i have nice eyes. let's focus on that. >> stephanie: melissa in pensacola, you're on with kathleen. hello, melissa. >> caller: good morning. >> stephanie: hello. >> caller: i am a bona fide born and raised democrat. but you know what? you guys -- i understand now why they say liberals whine so much. it is like you guys are never satisfied about anything. you make fun of george bush because he didn't listen to the chatter that was going on. because he didn't take it seriously, because he was offering a book.
6:55am
now president obama, let's go in syria or let's stay in afghanistan or let's go into iran. he's not saying that. he's just taking precautions. precautions. closing embassies. so what does that have to do with anything. >> stephanie: did i -- i'm confused. wait a minute. what? i've defended the nsa program. >> caller: not you. i'm sorry. those two men on there. god, the only reason -- listen to your show is because of you. if i had to listen to them, god, no. >> you should just take us out back like old yeller and put us out of our misery. >> caller: you should. >> stephanie: thank you. and good morning to you two. >> start your week.

guys. you're the greatest but listen, ted cruz, i have some people that are bipolar and manic depressant in my family and i see what he has right now. this guy is -- i'm so tired of hearing people say he's a genius. he's a scholar. >> stephanie: ted cruz? yeah. >> caller: my brother is a scholar but he's got bipolar. he does all of these crazy things and he has the lows. he's depressed or whatever. this guy, he's good for us in a way but still. come on, you know. come on. don't tell me that he's -- >> stephanie: he's a wacko birth as john mccain would say. how about this republican interparty fight going on, kathleen. fight, fight, fight, fight. >> love it. >> stephanie: shove each other into the bleachers. >> they need somebody from the outside to tell them what the problem is. they're all too close to it. it is terrible you think, i would really like to tell you guys from an outsider's point of view, that part of your party
6:57am
has been hijacked and you've got this part and then the tea party people and then most of the republicans i know aren't that people. you're not addressing those people. it is a mess. they're going to bring sarah palin back. what are you -- >> stephanie: they need an intervention. mcmanis wrote a piece in the "l.a. times," is the g.o.p. self-destructing. oh, is as in they haven't already? is that now a warning? >> now. >> they need an old man, not bob dole. he's too old. i don't mean moses old. i mean somebody that was respected that was in the middle. >> stephanie: that's john mccain. >> he's a little nutty. >> stephanie: here's rand paul and chris christie. >> if he cared about protecting this country, he wouldn't be this gimme, gimme, gimme all the money. >> maybe he should think about cutting the pork barrel spending he brings home to kentucky. but i doubt he would because most washington politicians only care about bringing home the

bacon. >> this is the king of bacon talking about bacon. if we can sit down, i'm inviting him for a beer. >> i don't have time for that at the moment. >> why don't you invite him for a delicious pork hot dog, right? you're talking about pork and bacon. >> stephanie: what did our caller call chris christie last week? oh, joey bag o doughnuts. governor joey bag o doughnuts. this just gets betterrer and betterrer. we'll talk about this. is the g.o.p. self-destructing. i love that. as if it's present tense as if it hasn't already happened. back with kathleen madigan, eric boehlert from media matters. much more as we continue on "the stephanie miller show."
6:59am
7:00am
[ ♪ theme ] >> stephanie: all right. hour number two. eric boehlert from media matters coming up. nurse jacki. >> yes? >> stephanie: shouldn't we be rooting for the wacko birds like ted cruz to shut the government down over obamacare because studies have showed a, it will not stop obamacare and b, it will be a public relations disaster. >> yeah, but i just wonder how far that public relations disaster will go because they've been pulling antics like this for so long and people are just kind of numb to them now, i think. >> stephanie: we're going to talk to eric boehlert about that in a minute.
7:01am
this is where the mainstream media falls down on the job as usual. they don't really point out the context on how unprecedented this would be. it is more just infighting in washington. it is like no, it's not. >> there is a reason why the sequester was put into place because there was no compromise and nobody laid blame there. i don't know how much they have to do before people get on them and tells them it is their fault. >> stephanie: i'm a small business owner who stumbled upon my own show and now here's jacki schechner in the current news center. >> good morning, everybody. it is unclear but reuters is reporting a secret drug enforcement unit is using domestic surveillance to target common criminals. reuters says the d.e.a. unit in question is launching investigations based on info collected through wiretaps and intelligence interception and phone records and also in doing so, it is being instructed to re-create that investigative trail. this puts the accused at a legal and constitutional disadvantage
7:02am
because if a defendant doesn't know the true source of information, he or she couldn't possibly investigate whether or not there were any mistakes made or incidents of entrapment. the reuters story comes from classified documents marked law enforcement sensitive reportedly distributed by the d.e.a. unit known as special operations division. while the justice department is so far refusing to comment, two senior d.e.a. officials tell reuters that re-creating the source of the tip that leads to an investigation is neither uncommon nor illegal. that the procedure has long been used to protect sources and investigative techniques. in other news, eric cantor, the house majority leader, is speak out about raising the debt ceiling saying that they could come to some sort of deal with entitlement cuts are part of the process. >> what raising the debt limit means, it's increasing the credit limit. and for too long now, washington has disregarded the fact that that -- what that does is it burdens our kids and theirs and we actually are digging the hole
7:03am
deeper for the next generation. >> he fails to mention that hole would get rid of medicare and social security which future generations would need. we're back after the break. a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years. (vo) he's been called the epic politics man. he's michael shure and his arena is the war room. >> these republicans in congress that think the world ends at the atlantic ocean border and pacific ocean border. the bloggers and the people that are sort of compiling the best of the day. i do a lot of looking at those people as well. not only does senator rubio just care about rich people, but somehow he thinks raising the minimum wage is a bad idea for the middle class. but we do
7:04am
care about them right?

they don't have time for a whole letter. i think twitter is mean sometimes. my people aren't specifically. there are people that go for people that are just mean. because then you look and you go oh, do you this all day. it is not personal. >> stephanie: we get more done before 6:00 a.m. than most people do all day. you should move to some [ bleep ] abandoned house in detroit. if a bunch of these white slobs who have creepy ass -- would move there with you, you can have a creepy ass neighborhood. detroit a little piece of turd world africa right here in america. >> wow. that's a little haaseist. >> was that -- was that a little racist? >> that was for me. >> just for you? >> stephanie: just for me. >> it's a tie. >> stephanie: you know what i
7:08am
think? because sean hannity mentioned me last week. >> did he. >> stephanie: i always get that. >> i saw that tweet. yeah, yeah. okay. all right. >> stephanie: speaking of right-wing world. >> eric boehlert from media matters for america doing the lord's work. ♪ hurts so good ♪ come on, baby ♪ eric boehlert hurts so good. >> stephanie: let's dive into the right-wing world. >> i don't know what that means. ♪ hurts so good >> stephanie: you know what? you tules ton a lot of -- you tulessen to a lot of right wing media. benghazi fever, another friday in right wing radio. >> we talked about the return of the clinton crazies, the speculation hillary will take a higher profile in terms of domestic politics after serving
7:09am
overseas. so yeah, this is sort of the -- the embers are being lit, right? so the crucifixion -- it is a nice image, right? this is what we do with our public policy officials who we disagree with. of course, laura ingraham has been fueling the benghazi hysteria for almost a year now. it is what's to come. you know, last time, just real quick, in 2008, hillary had that competdiv race with obama and the right ring media wasn't sure who they wanted to win or lose. they held their fire in a way. if she runs in 2016, there will be no holding fire and we'll see crucifixion and weird kind of imagery. >> stephanie: dow hits record high. >> media matters took a look at fox's coverage of the economic
7:10am
news last week. some of it was pretty encouraging. when it is pretty encouraging, it doesn't exist. that coverage doesn't exist. you would not know housing values shot up last year and hit a -- a seven or eight-year high. that doesn't exist at fox. so you know, if you can't talk about the economy and you're an all news channel, and you -- that kind of eliminates -- you know, usually a pretty big chunk of what you pay attention to. at least if it is headlines, if you let that, what do you fill the hole with? benghazi and the i.r.s. and all of this other stuff. >> stephanie: as you say, we hit 40. g.o.p. votes to repeal obamacare but you wrote a great piece about g.o.p. pushes obamacare shutdown, media pretends it is madness as usual. this is what i was talking about before the break. amazing how they just always -- here we go again with partisan warfare. both sides do it in washington. they have so successfully moved
7:11am
the goalpost. it is not even funny. "the new york times" today has yet another story. they report that a lot of the republican governors don't want, you know, republicans in washington to shut down the government of obamacare. sort of mundanely referred to as the plan or the strategy or the push. my piece was like take two steps back and those words should be insane, lunacy, out of their mind. i mean think about it. they couldn't stop obamacare from passing into law. they couldn't stop the supreme court from legitimizing it. they lost two election electoral landslides to obama so they're going to bring the entire federal government to a halt so it can't implement a lot they can stop. and you read about it in the beltway press and it is oh, it's the latest plan. it is latest initiative. it is insane. it is completely insane.
7:12am
just treated as oh, this is what the republicans might do. >> stephanie: more than that, eric be, you point out almost with admiration, to the surprise of no one who's followed the press's timidity toward the g.o.p. and its open admiration of republican hardball tactics, the news media has done little to explain how the gamut is. >> and it ties into the complete free pass they've given the g.o.p. over the radical obstructionist strategies that they've used for the last five years. just real quick, i mean i went back and googled 2007-2008, there are a handful of democratic members of congress who wanted to cut off funding for the iraq war. the democratic leadership quickly put the kibosh on it. it went nowhere. they wanted to specifically limit dollars that the defense department was using or that bush was asking for -- can you imagine if the democratic
7:13am
members in congress went on tv for weeks and weeks and said we're going to bring the federal government to a halt? in order to defund the war in iraq? they would have been -- they would have been run out of town by the press. >> stephanie: right. that's what your point is. the g.o.p. has allowed them to move the goalpost in defining what, as you say, acceptable mainstream behavior. it just -- you say it appears there's no cockamamie strategy that they can ponder that the beltway press won't legit mise and take seriously. how we got here, that's how we got here, right? >> right. that's how we got to the government shutdown nonsense. it really is the g.o.p. just announces this is the lunacy where they're going to pursue and "the washington post" said okay. tell us what the lunacy is. we'll get a couple of quotes. instead of describing it as lunacy, it is a plan. it is a strategy.
7:14am
it is a push. it is an initiative. just absolutely -- it just -- it enables this radical behavior. >> stephanie: eric, we were talking before the break. we were playing some sound of the whole rand paul chris christie fight. it is interesting to think how is this going to play out? someone was saying you could call it a civil war but they're not organized enough for that. what's going on in the republican party? just in the republican party. it is not unprecedented what they're doing with obama and the democrats. how do you think this is going to play out with republicans? >> i think that's the larger point that there is, you know, the -- there is no republican establishment. there are no wise men. there are no people who traditionally, whether democratic or republican party, sort of ran the game in d.c. and set up the guidelines or the guardrails in terms of this is how we behave. you know, the guardrails went down unlike obama's first inauguration day. and so it has been chaos ever
7:15am
since. so yeah, look forward, looking ahead, without those guardrails, this is what you have, christie and paul and just sort of this crazy name-calling and it is going to intensify and i think 2016 is going to be a massive car wreck. because nobody knows what the rules are anymore because republicans have been so busy tearing them down themselves. >> stephanie: eric, the "l.a. times" says yesterday, perhaps the problem the republicans have is one of leadership. when asked to identify the leadership party, the first place winner was accurately enough, nobody. that's a problem. >> yeah. probably rush limbaugh came in second or third. that's been the other huge problem. the republican leadership is completely advocated itself to this right wing noise machine. they were completely defeated in early 2009. there was nothing left of the republican party really. so they said here, fox, rush
7:16am
limbaugh, you take it. you be the opposition party. you come up with an agenda. you smear. you tackle bomb, call him a nazi, racist. do all of this stuff because ware spent. the problem is now, even if the republican wanted to, they can't take the reins back from limbaugh and fox news. they're like oh! we kind of like this. we're in charge. you guys follow us. and as we saw with romney, they followed them off a cliff. but yeah. nobody is in charge of the republican party. look at this -- the pending showdown. look at what boehner has to deal with. it is a total mess. >> stephanie: here's in right-wing world how you know we've come full circle, the voice of reason has become ann coulter. she went on hannity's show and railed against christie and paul for their bitch fight. >> look where she's railing on it. she's even dividing that by where she chose to make that appearance. okay.
7:17am
so that's where you're going to say it? in another devil's den? you have to go somewhere else. if she went on cnn to say that, then it seems like she's speaking to everyone. >> stephanie: exactly. it is popcorn viewing, isn't it, eric? >> it is. you look at specifically paul versus christie, you know, really the winner will be determined by who fox backs and right now, they're not picking a horse in that race. it is playing out. but ultimately, it is a cable tv channel that's going to decide the winner of that fight just like they decide all of the other fights. then again it goes back to there being no leadership in the republican party and advocating to the role of people like sean hannity and bill o'reilly. >> stephanie: eric, great stuff. talk to you next week. thanks so much. >> okay, bye-bye. [ applause ] >> stephanie: yes, ann coulter said the reason chris christie started this little bitch fight
7:18am
is to distract the fact that he and his senate nominee that he appointed in new jersey voted for amnesty. i'm pointing out that's what the bitch fight is about so don't fall for it, she warned. i love hannity for saying bitch fight. she was talking about democrats but just calling republican men little bitches that probably got his panties in a little -- >> that's not acceptable on that show. i wonder if -- back to the benghazi thing for a minute, trying to fan the flames on that since the election. the last two -- happened right at the end. and they've been trying to get that to catch fire and again, it goes back to this is all a reality show and if your show doesn't have any sexting or drugs or rock n' roll, general public is not on board with benghazi. i still don't know where it is. i'm too lazy to google it. i don't care where it is quite frankly. we know some people got killed well, they're c.i.a. people, isn't that kind of what is in
7:19am
the program. >> stephanie: right. >> it is not going to catch fire. they have to find something new. it doesn't have anything people are interested in literally. >> stephanie: right. >> no pictures. there's nothing. >> stephanie: we haven't even talked about that yet. 18 minutes after the hour. we'll have some weiner talk with kathleen madigan next on "the stephanie miller show." >> announcer: call the political party line now, 1-800-steph-12.

all right. we've been talking about republican dysfunction. [ ♪ "nbc nightly news" ] dysfunction in washington. but it is republican, i'm just saying. "l.a. times," even by the standards of a congress that's earned a reputation for dysfunction this past week, the last before a long summer recess, set a mark for futility. if you thought they could do less than nothing, they've achieved that. republican leaders in the house hoped to pass a bill providing money for several government agencies. instead, they halted the vote after a g.o.p. campaign hit an unexpected roadblock. rank and file republicans refused to approve cuts that home state governors and mayors rely on to fix streets and bridges. conservatives were stunned their more moderate colleagues could not stomach the reductions they had agreed to as part of an austerity republican plan. they need to finish the fight

8:35am
congressman from right there, two feet away in burbank says it, i'm scared. good morning, congressman adam schiff. >> good morning, stephanie. how are you? >> stephanie: i know there is little you can tell us or you would have to kill us but we're going to listen for your tone of voice. saw you all over the tv yesterday. obviously, this is what's tough when you're talking about this stuff, right? first of all, you know, i think those of us on the left, sometimes have a reaction because we remember all of the dick cheneys of the world saying stuff we felt like was trying to scare us particularly into an unnecessary war in iraq. can you give us a sense of how real you think this is, the amount of chatter we're hearing from al-qaeda? >> i think it is certainly judging from the intelligence community's reaction and their confidence and the source of information and the collaboration, you know, something that is not your average typical death to the great satan kind of chatter, unspecific chatter but rather people that they find credible,
8:36am
that they think are a real threat. they don't have much sense of the location. but if you're briefing the president a couple of times a day, it is something they're taking very seriously and we have to, as well. it is hard for me to compare to 9-11, you know, i do think we've degraded the core of al-qaeda so significantly, the likelihood of something of a magnitude of 9-11 is happily fairly remote. i don't like the comparison but this is more than the usual, you know, disjointed chatter we often hear and i think in the post-benghazi era, we're taking it very seriously and doing everything we can to protect our personnel. >> stephanie: i brought up the partisanship of this because you know, i'm sure you saw rick santorum on "meet the press." some people want the narrative that the president's bad, the president's weak. it is because of the president. even joe scarborough who is no liberal, said, you know, i'm no fan of obama but that's
8:37am
completely untrue. he echoed what you just said. we have degraded al-qaeda. he obviously did get bin laden, the bush administration didn't. this doesn't necessarily break down on partisan lines, does it? >> it doesn't. i think for the most part, members of both sides of the aisle feel the precautions that the administration, the state department are taking are responsible steps and you know, it is hard to make a case against the president that he hasn't been diligent in the effort to weed out al-qaeda and go after its senior leadership. he's been very diligent about it and you know, there are legitimate policy questions to ask about whether we're making progress in the broader conflict because we now have not the core of al-qaeda as it was but we have these franchises that you know are all over north africa and the arabian peninsula and elsewhere. that can be very lethal as well. it is a more diffused threat. not capable of the same kind of coordinated attack we saw on 9-11 but it is capable of
8:38am
putting bombs on airliners as we've seen and finding new and ingenious ways to smuggle bombs inside of people, inside of printer cartridges and unfortunately, one of the chief and most creative of the bomb makers, is in yemen, part of a qap. that's part of what we're really concerned about. >> stephanie: representative, we've heard a lot of people yesterday especially on tv speculating and where do you think this is coming from? obviously people are talking about the prison breaks and al-qaeda members got out of various prisons around the world. the anniversary of 9-11 coming up, ramadan ending, is there something specific to the level of chatter we're hearing in your opinion? >> well, that's what we're being told from the intelligence community that it is specific. it is not the usual, generalized chatter. i think you do add to that the other events you mentioned. we've had three prison breaks in
8:39am
three different countries with a lot of taliban, with a lot of al-qaeda fighters being released. that's a grave concern. you have timing of the end of ramadan. you have the timing of the approach of 9-11. you have almost year anniversary since we saw those protests and attacks on our consulates and embassies around the world. i think the confluence of those events coming together plus the credibility of the sources of information puts us on a different level than what we've seen in the past and it is accounting for the broader response. >> stephanie: it seems like -- i remember a time we all used to be americans. i have to say i have to admit the partisan bias i think after the bush administration, all of the things we were told that led us into iraq, when someone like you or al franken or dianne feinstein says it, i reflexively trust it more. but i don't know where we go with that because like i say, it seemed like yesterday i saw a lot of people on -- breaking down on partisan lines on this
8:40am
again. >> well, i don't think this is being used by anyone as an effort to justify troop offensive in yemen or anything like that. so i don't think this is the build-up to some military action in the future. i think probably more than anything else is the addition of very credible source of information, the intelligence community's view. and the effort post-benghazi to take every step possible to protect our people. probably much broader response, i think than would have happened in the absence of the tragedy in benghazi. this is kind of the new climate. the new responsibility. >> stephanie: my producer chris this morning echoed some of the suspicion of those on the left of going oh, is this just a big belly run for the nsa programs because people are having concerns about those. you know, the timing of this -- talking about this stuff or not. >> i don't accept that conspiracy theory that this is an effort to buck up the nsa or
8:41am
support for the nsa. you know, there are some folks that are out there talking about well, this shows the nsa program is effective and they're inferring, i think, it is the one most under criticism, the domestic bulk data collection program. i think it would be extraordinarily unlikely that program played any role in uncovering this plot since we're talking about an overseas plot and focused on primarily on overseas embassies and consulates, the collection of bulk domestic data probably is far removed from that. i don't think people should either leap to the conclusion that that program was responsible or -- affirm that. and that troubles me that that suggestion is being made. >> stephanie: let's pause talking to you while i play a sound byte of you yesterday. here you are. >> you have to be very careful about how much you represent that any particular program has contributed to our security. >> stephanie: that's the problem, isn't it? when you're talking about stuff
8:42am
that you can't talk to us about. we don't know which particular program stopped what, right? >> well, that's true. particularly in a situation like this where we're not talking about a historical plot. something that happened five or ten years ago where the risk of disclosing sources is less because people are not going to be with that old information. this is on-going. so we don't want to point to specific sources or programs. we don't want our adversaries to be able to change techniques or know how we're gleaning intelligence. i think people have to be very careful not to disclose much about this but -- and at the same time, not to represent that programs that are under criticism right now are the source of our information. >> stephanie: what are your thoughts on russia giving snowden asylum? >> well, you know, i think it is yet another poke in the eye, something that putin really relishes doing. they had every legal opportunity
8:43am
and responsibility to send him back to us. i think that you know, for putin, it is a chance to enhance his standing with his own people and also given the criticism that we've made of russia on their crackdown of ngos, the fact that journalists who expose corruption in russia are murdered with impunity quite frequently. this is an opportunity for putin to kind of fight back, push back and enjoy the discomfort of the united states. i think they should have sent him back and i'm deeply disappointed although not surprised they didn't. >> stephanie: yep. absolutely. adam schiff, thank you so much. i'm going to decode. play the tape backwards when i get home and i think aisling's know what specific threats you were talking about. >> if you go to the beatles album and on the second track, i can't tell you which album because that's classified, play that backwards, it will reveal all. >> okay. >> stephanie: we've got that on tape. all right. thank you. thank you, congressman.
